People can already hook GCC up to proprietry front ends by simply
having their front end generate C code. There are certainly a number
of proprietry language front ends around that generate C code, e.g.
Cfront (the original C compiler), some Eiffel compilers, etc., as
well as many free software compilers that do the same. And if you
plan to use the GNU back-end, then C is almost certainly going to be a
better target language than Java or Java byte codes. So I think the
worry about proprietry front ends is misplaced. The cat is out of the
bag, and whatever damage will result from that is already unstoppable.
